I need to copy all the data from a sheet in a closed workbook into a sheet in my open workbook.
Can someone point me in the direction of how to set this up in VBA code? I need to copy sheet1 from my file called "IVAL"  and paste values into my open file on the sheet called "IVAL".

Seeing sample data would help

This code should assist though. It goes into your open workbook

It will copy the usedrange of a sheet called Sheet1 from a workbook called IVAL stored under C\temp

<pls edit your path - the "c:\temp\ "and the "Sheet1" name as needed>

This usedrange is copied to the first cell under the last used cell in sheet IVAL from the host (your open) worknook

My article here - http://www.experts-exchange.com/A_2804.html - may also be of interest/use.

Cheers
